1. Take a Moment to Relax

Franctically searching for something? If so, you know how stressful it can be. Take a few moments to calm down. By being calm, you’ll be able to look for it more successfully and without making a huge mess!   

2. What Were You Wearing?

We often put our wallets in our pant or jacket pockets because it’s so convenient. Try checking the outfits you recently wore. If you threw your clothes in the hamper, go through your hamper to see if it may have fallen in there!  

3. Were you Around a Toddler Recently

Children are notorious for taking people’s belongings. I actually stole my mom’s wedding ring when I was younger… oops! If you were recently near a toddler or a baby, try checking their stash of toys! Who knows, you could find a lot of missing treasure in there

4. Be Confident

Have an open and positive mindset about finding your missing wallet. Being more positive about the situation will make you more determined to find it and chances are you will! It will also help clear your mind and give you insight on where it might be!

 

5. Embrace the Situation

Regardless of whether or not you find your missing wallet, take this experience as a lesson learned. Make it a point to keep this experience in mind in the future to prevent putting yourself in this situation again. One simple check I always do before leaving the house is repeating "phone, wallet, keys" in my head. This helps me make sure that I have them all with me. 

 

PRO TIP: Use a TrackR! Want to keep track of your wallet and keep peace of mind? Stick a thin, sleek TrackR bravo in you wallet, and you can receive alerts before you leave it behind as well as use the app to ring your device or alert you when another active app user passes the wallet’s location. It truly is better to be safe than sorry!
